Synopsis

This is a celebration of the rich diversity of the South African peoples, and the various traditions, beliefs and customs that have contributed to the making of this multicultural nation. In this extraordinary portfolio, author Sue Derwent and photographers Roger and Pat de Ia Harpe explore the many faces and cultures that make up this remarkable landscape. From the Sotho and Nguni to the Shangaan-Tsonga and Venda, many of these ancient cultures and lifestyles are still maintained and nurtured according to the conventions established by their ancestors over the centuries. The complexity of language, the timelessness of ritual, and the inherent skill reflected in indigenous craft are all integral to traditional African culture, and the inspirational images captured here honour the ancient traditions - among them arts and crafts, spiritual belief and customs - of their ancestors and the rich tapestry that remains their legacy.
